Throughout the world many Christian churches have stood the test of time, but not by accident. In order for a neighborhood church to survive it requires the support of its parishioners and the local community. In some church’s history many issues have come and gone creating division but support of the community’s local church has remained constant while others have closed.
This website will work to highlight those historic churches who’s doors have remained open and active in their communities for nearly a century or more. From its architecture to its history each of these churches has served as pillars to their neighborhoods and has an incredible story worth being told. With so many things in this world working to divide us, these churches serve as a testament to what has and continues to united us.
This website is launching by highlighting 3 St. Louis churches, the Shrine of St. Joseph, St. John Nepomuk, and Trinity Lutheran. This is only the beginning. St. Louis is filled with so many churches whose rich history and beautiful architecture still have stories to tell. I invite you, if you can, to visit these holy places in person. If you cannot, I invite you to learn more about these places, along with their struggles and successes as their neighborhoods’ continue their support.
